Seriously, I am really bad at this. I get very excited and tell myself I’m going to keep up with a blog then I just stop doing it. I think about it but just don’t do it.
Anyway, the last time I posted I just got back from skiing. We are now gearing up to head back to Asheville this weekend but not for skiing. We are going to visit the Biltmore Estate for their Candlelight Christmas. I am very excited. Asheville (including the Biltmore) is my favorite place.
We have our daytime tour scheduled for 1pm so we will head up Saturday morning for that. We will do the tour and wine tasting then head back after dark for the Candlelight Christmas.
The fact that I have been a terrible Weight Watcher has held my excitement for the weekend at bay. I have knowingly avoided the plan as well as the gym. I actually ate half a pumpkin pie yesterday. About 3/4 of the way through, I realized what I was doing and still didn’t stop. I went to the gym today and have never been so scared to step on the scale. Luckily, I hadn’t gained as much as I thought but, I have gained over 10 pounds and I am miserable.
I don’t know why I punish myself like this. I was so close to my goal and I just give up. I have done this with so much in my life and I need to make a change! I actually sucked it up and decided to get back on track after watching (oh, this is hard to admit) The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and Yolanda Foster was at her daughter’s photo shoot. She told her daughter that she knows it’s hard to eat salad everyday when you want something else and it’s hard to go to the gym 6 days a week. I liked hearing this because it is hard work and sometimes I don’t think people understand that. I feel they think I’m “just a gym person” or “just a healthy eater”. It frustrates me and I appreciate Yolanda saying that and giving her daughter that credit and acknowledging her efforts . She then asked her daughter if she felt it was worth it and she said that it was difficult but when she was in front of the camera enjoying what she does she felt it was worth the work. Even though I’m not a model, I have to stand in front of the mirror everyday and I am definitely happier when I am in shape.
Anyway, enough of this episode of “How Reality TV Influences Me”. They dryer has just stopped so it is now time for me to be a real housewife.
